Big Echo Karaoke (ビッグエコー): The Largest Karaoke Chain In Japan

You'll find Big Echo karaoke bars virtually everywhere you go in Japan. They have one of the biggest selection of songs in Japanese, English Chinese and Korean. Furthermore, the machines for selecting your songs can be set to the language you want so you shouldn't have any problem finding the song or artist that you like.


The company has many brands of karaoke. If the name is written in alphabet ("Big Echo"), it means that the rooms will tend to be more luxurious and that there will be more items on the food menu. These tend to be more geared towards an adult clientele.

If the name is written in katakana (ビッグエコー), it means that the rooms have a more casual feel and that they have a plenty of items on the drinks menu. This brand caters, particularly to a younger, student clientele.

Interestingly, they now even have a new karaoke concept called "Self Karaoke Happy Party" where you can bring your own food and drinks!
And some locations even have special rooms with awesome lighting and projection.
